    Is this the first time they supporting Wii? Wow

    • George

      no it’s not, they’ve done patches for all of them

  • Ryumoau

    To be honest i didn’t even know Nintendo had online multiplayer support on wii u. I remember online being a pain on the wii because of the stupid friend code thing.

    • George

      That’s not the case anymore with Wii U. People have account names just like on other consoles now. 3DS still has the friend code system, but its still infinitely easier than the Wii’s friend system.

    • Rodger Jamjet

      Wow, that’s old needs now. The Wii U is a totally different thing altogether, networking and all. Friend codes are old news. The new Nintendo network is far superior and much better. Nintendo are starting to find their feet with this very good network

  • George

    Yay, good update 😀

  • Alexander Kleinwechter

    Its only a matter of time until the americans wake up and get all pissed off and will call the wii u stupid and shitty. I hope they do not though!

      Zzzzz….ahh! What a glorious morning, let’s see what’s on CharlieIntel. Humhumhum. WII U?! OH HELL NOOOO. 😉

    WiiU > PS4 + XBONE

      Well. That’s your opinion

      • F12CHARTREUX

        Well, it was kind of a joke, although a lot of truth put into it. And yes, it is my opinion. It was just a social “experiment”, and I am astonished (in a good way) at how many likes I had received over dislikes.

        • jooker-jr

          There are two bad things about the Wii U :
          1- the horsepower
          2- the marketing

          The Wii U games are fun

    Should’ve bundled the Wii U with CoD Ghosts. Not a gigantic graphical leap between this and the overhyped dudebro consoles. Would’ve helped sell a couple thousand units.
